Think ahead and plan things to do in the half term week when the kids need something to keep them occupied. Jodrell Bank will be having great activities for older children and adults who enjoy science.
Do you think you’re smarter than a 10 year old? In the Out of this World science show Jodrell Bank will challenge children and adults to go head-to-head and show off their knowledge of all things space. Which of the exciting experiments you will see depends on who’s rocketing to the right answers!
